Have you ever found yourself treading in a body of water as waves pull you up and down, back and forth? Before you know it, you’ve drifted from where you were and have unintentionally traveled far from shore. This image can also be true of our life.
We live in a rapidly changing world. And even beyond that, different voices and challenges pull us in many different directions. We can do our best to go through life but then gain a moment of perspective and see how far we’ve drifted. Or maybe we consistently find our lives and emotions getting rocked as we encounter stress and suffering.
But what if there was another way? What if God intended us to have a solid foundation, an anchor that can keep us grounded no matter what waves come at us? Throughout the season of Lent, we’re going to be taking a closer look at various practices and spiritual disciplines that the Bible has to offer. And if we can incorporate these practices into our daily lives, we will become a people with Sturdy Hearts.
